Can anyone tell me if there is a way to boost the reception to my DAB radios? I have got two radios - one a Roberts Gemini 12 and the other a Roberts WM202 and neither will receive Classic FM (my favourite station) unless the radios are in FM mode. Is this the fault of the radio station or where I live? (If it's relevant I can get BBC radio 2, 3 and 4 and I have had to have a booster on my TV aerial because of poor reception)
I am a very happy non TV licence holder. I use the internet for all my programme watching and apart from my Netflix subscription, I pay for no other TV. I watch ITV/Chanel 4/Chanel 5 and a multitude of other on demand TV and films using a Roku box. Roku also make the SkyTV NowTV box but because the NowTV box is used to mainly get you to subscribe to NowTV chanels, very little else is available using this box yet the Roku box can be used to get NowTV and over 500 other chanels! If you want to get rid of your satellite/Virgin subscription and you have a normal (non high speed cable) Internet service, get yourself a Roku box from Argos/Currys/PC World/Amazon. It's brilliant and there are so many services to use without the expense of traditional subscription TV services
This is a new social and professional networking platform. It's great for people trying out blogging. Less silly than Facebook and much friendlier than LinkedIn. Has anyone tried it out? I have and I think it's great for people of my age.
Hi everyone, can someone tell me why I cannot comment on the Silver Surfers FaceBook page please. I have liked and follow the page and the notifications come up on my news feed, but when I go to the page I cannot comment. There is no 'comment' option. I can see everyone else's comments but can't make my own. Feeling a little left out!
I have just seen that M&S had issues today with some customers seeing other customers details when they login to the new loyalty card called "Sparks". last week there was a huge outrage with talktalk being hacked. First they thought it was by Russian Hackers and in todays papers they are saying its a 15 year old boy in Northern Ireland! Incredible that a kid that age can disrupt a major company like TalkTalk
I am forever getting phone calls regarding ‘virus’ ‘ on my laptop but had my first phone call regarding a problem with my broadband service and provider. When I told the caller at the other end of the phone that I would phone my provider personally he hung up. BEWARE
I recently bought a little 7″ freeview TV. For the aerial it had a small stand with a piece of wire attached which didn’t work at all well.
So, I decided to dig out my old textbooks and make myself an aerial.
I got a piece of brass curtain rod, and cut two 12.5cm lengths. I put them onto a garden cane, so that they almost touched, and glued them to keep them in position. Then I found a piece of coax cable, with a plug on one end. I fixed the inner wire and the outer sheath to the middle ends of the two pieces of curtain rod. (You can do this by soldering, or by drilling two small holes and putting in a couple of self tapping screws.)
It rests on top of our Guinea pigs cage in the conservatory, and gives us good TV pictures on all channels.
You need to check if the TV signal in your area is vertically or horizontally polarised by looking at the other TV aerials nearby. Then point your aerial in the right direction.
Its a con that so many people in our area have had brand new rooftop aerials to get the Freeview channels.
